Look what he did on Sunday in obvious pain. Down by nine and made two key fourth down conversions and was clutch on the last play for the win.
Sure every now and then he makes mistakes at key moments but that's the nature of a gunslinger.
He is not the sole reason that team sucks. That defense is on track for the worst defense in NFL history for a single season.
This. Romo isn't great or elite, never will be, but he's not a complete scrub either. Crazy how much flack Romo gets whenever they lose - you'd think he actually played for that god awful Cowboys D. Romo in the game definitely gives them a better shot but I'm not sure if that will make much of a difference: Eagles' high powered offense will carve out the swiss cheese Cowboys defense regardless of who's starting at QB for the Cowboys. But I'm sure people would try to blame Romo for the incompetent defense too.
I don't think he's a scrub, but I do think he's the most coddled QB in the last 20 years or so. This dude melts down without fail in virtually every "must win" scenario and for some reason its never his fault. People love to talk about his 4th quarter QB rating, but they tend to forget little nuggets like this one:
And the fact that his QB rating plummets to the mid 40's when there's five minutes or less left to play.
So yea, he's a great QB, so long as the game isn't on the line.
